Went to Oslo this week and visited the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, where I saw some of Damien Hirst’s animals in formaldehyde for the first time. Bit of a shocking experience but fascinating.
The biggest installation was this, ‘God Alone Knows’. Be warned, not for the faint hearted!!
Tbe reason I called this post, ‘It’s all connected’ is because I immediately thought of Francis Bacon’s obsession with the flayed ox carcass that he took directly from Rembrandt.
This link to a post about Bacon from last year should put the ‘meat on the bones’, as they say!!
